When I was little I used to live by a slogan that said that girls ruled and boys drooled. I don’t know if saying boys drooled literally meant they drooled but I know that girls rule really did mean girls rule and I was unashamed to pronounce that to the world. I enjoyed haring about the different women who have shaped history and who helped pave the way for me and women like me because I realized had they not done all the good things they had done in the world then perhaps I wouldn’t be who I am today.
One of the pioneers in women that my mom taught me to love and appreciate was Helane Morrison. Helane was a woman who worked hard to make sure she made a difference in the world of women’s empowerment. She was a marketing guru, a financial executive among other things. She was the true definition of what it takes to be a pioneer.
Helane also stood above the rest because she received both her marketing and law degrees. To be able to have the skill sets needed to flourish in both areas are super important and vital to the needs of not only your business but to the needs of the community in which you continue to serve no matter the odds that have been stacked against you.
